How does it work?


The grades awarded by the Ethical Fashion Report are a measure of the efforts undertaken by each company to mitigate the risks of forced labour, child labour and worker exploitation in their supply chains. Higher grades are given to companies with labour rights management systems that, if implemented well, should reduce the extent of worker exploitation.

Our research team assesses each company’s labour rights management system according to 33 specific criteria. These assessments consider three critical stages of the supply chain as a proxy for the entire supply chain: raw materials, inputs production and final manufacturing. To find out more about how we grade brands, read our FAQ section.

Be Generous

End worker exploitation!

Your support means more companies will be held accountable for their actions to protect their workers. And more brands will be graded to help you make ethical purchasing choices.
